    Drag-and-drop your .bsp on the bzip2 executable (this will delete the .bsp, so better use a copy).

    If it doesn't work, here's the longer way:

    1. Put the bzip2.exe on your desktop.
    2. Put a copy of your MyMap.bsp file on your desktop.
    3. Go to start menu => run, type "cd Desktop" (no quotes), and then type "bzip2 MyMap.bsp" (still no quotes).

    Is there a difference in the end product if I use 7zip?

    I've been using Pzip. If you include multiple files it .tars first. I don't think it matters, probably a bz2 things, I suppose 7z would do it too.

    It's got a button top left that says create 'zip, bz2', whatever your chioce in options was.

    I figured it out really quickly, never read instructions ;)
